Welcome aboard The Giddy Carousel of Pop! We are a Smash Hits appreciation podcast dedicated to the swingorilliant British pop magazine which ran from 1978 to 2006. In each episode, we take an old issue of Ver Hits (usually from the 1980s but may slip a year or two either side of that) and discuss what’s on its pages, looking at who’s riding high on the carousel and who’s heading down the dumper. We always have a guest to help us along the way, so we’ll be talking to the readers, the writers, and who knows, maybe even the odd pop star who appeared in its pages.A proud part of the We Made This podcast network.

    I’m really enjoying listening to you guys reliving the 80s, you make it fun and I love the nostalgia. It’s a pleasure to listen to so thanks for brightening up the journey to work. More 1984 though please, the best year of the lot. Keep up the good work and thank you.

    Warm, nostalgic, trenchant and funny. An utter delight. Plus a bonus for the links to playlists and the original mag.

    I loved Smash Hits as a kid, and this podcast is a wonderful dollop of nostalgia. My copies of Smash Hits might be gone after my mum threw them out, but this podcast helps me remember how much I loved them!
